Confused..Dishnetwork or Direct TV?

I am through with comcast. I am looking into Direct T.V. or Dishnetwork. Each of them have something I like but I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas?

  • do not, i repeat, do not do dish. they will rip you off, bad service and they cheat you on your contract. their contracts in very fine print state they have the right to raise the rates whenever they see fit.

  • I sooooo want to get rid of freakin comcast. I'm really considering dish network for the price anyway. I don't know anyone with either so I don't know about the service.

  • we have found the people at Dish are better...as we have had both....DirecTV never cancelled our service when we called to cancel...we were getting bills a year after we cancelled!!!!

  • We're going through the EXACT same thing. We actually have had such a bad experience with Comcast that we had them just turn us off!!! We haven't had "TV" since last week! We're trying to decide between Dish Network and Direct TV too! It seems that Dish Network's prices are a little better, but for only a little more Direct TV has better stuff??? I'd LOVE to read more feedback from you ladies that have these services and the good/bad with both...PLEASE???!!!!

  • I've had Directv for almost 7 years and haven't had any problems with them.

    My suggestion: figure out which channels you watch the most or want to watch, how much you can afford a month and then do a side-by-side comparison of Direct and Dish. Go with whichever offers the best plan for the channels you want around the price you can afford.

  • I just signed up for direct TV. I hate comcast. My brother has had direct TV for 5 yrs and loves them. Dish rips people off.

  • I figured out that I have 18 channels through comcast but only 6 that are worth watching for the same amount that dishnetwork is charging for 120..I've heard direct tv is better but they are a little more expensive..However they do give you 30 more channels for $5 more.

  • I have Dishnetwork and I love it. I really don't know how we lived so long without DVR.
